With Iran’s war in Syria having been “won” with the defeat of rebel forces in Aleppo, Major General Hossein Salami, the Deputy Commander of the entire IRGC, spoke up about Iran’s next battles. Salami is pictured, wearing the tell-tale collar insignia of the kings of Media and Persia.
Salami is quoted as saying,
“It is now time for the Islamic conquests. After the liberation of Aleppo, Bahrain’s hopes will be realised and Yemen will be happy with the defeat of the enemies of Islam.”
He also said,
“The people of Mosul will taste the taste of victory.”
The Three Paths
The IRGC Deputy Commander’s speech confirms the three paths on which Iranian forces will charge in Daniel 8. Disinformation is always a possibility, but if Salami’s statement is taken at face value, the IRGC views each of the three paths as follows:
First, to the west, the path is secure. The Syrian rebels have been defeated and Assad, Iran’s Shia ally, will stay in power.
Second, to the south, is the next path to receive the regime’s focus. With tens of thousands of Iranian and other Shia fighters relieved in Syria with the rebels defeat, the IRGC can now work on preparing Yemen and Bahrain, two points along the southern path. Just as Iranian forces helped prepare the west by keeping Assad in power, it looks as if Iran may try to make the Yemeni Shias also secure, and have successful Shia uprisings in Bahrain.
Third, on the path to the north, the regime will be focusing on Mosul. It is possible in the near future we may also see Iranian militias working with Kurds and Shia populations within Turkey to ready the charge north.
Some say the ram’s charge is in full swing. I say it is not. Daniel 8:4 says Iran will get all it wants to do. It hasn’t yet – it hasn’t spread its Revolution to all the countries of the area. I believe what is going on right now is Iran is preparing the Shia populations in the three directions so that when Iran does charge, these Shia areas will help Iran occupy all the Sunni areas – those areas that Iran views as needing to be conquered. And Salami has confirmed nothing has changed in the IRGC’s plans.
